Avenir, Chicago

Avenir has excellent access to public transit and nearby restaurants and nightlife.

Shopping. The nearest full-service grocery stores are a Jewel-Osco nearly three-quarters of a mile southeast of Avenir, and a Target nearly a mile northeast on Division St.

A CVS Pharmacy is steps away on Chicago Ave. Retail shopping is virtually non-existent near the building. Clybourn Corridor, Michigan Avenue and Wicker Park / Bucktown shops can be reached fairly quickly by buses along Halsted St, Chicago Ave, and Milwaukee Ave, respectively. The CTA Blue Line affords rapid access to State Street shops and to Wicker Park and Bucktown.

Dining, nightlife. There’s a good selection of bars and restaurants with a distinctive character within a short walk of Avenir.

The Matchbox on Milwaukee Ave speculates that it might be “the smallest tavern in Chicago.” The adjacent Silver Palm diner is open seasonally in an original railroad dining car.

A few blocks southeast of Avenir there’s a fun cluster of bars and restaurants near the intersection of Grand Ave and Halsted St, including Duran, Iguana, Emmit’s, Richard’s Bar, La Scarola, The Dawson and Piccolo Sogno.

The numberless dining and nightlife venues in River North and the West Loop are a short bike, cab, Uber or bus ride from Avenir.

Parks, recreation. Avenir has limited access to public parks and outdoor recreation opportunities.

Eckhardt Park, the nearest public park of any size, is half a mile west of Avenir.

Transportation. Avenir has excellent access to public transportation.

Avenir is a short block from the Chicago Ave Blue Line station, which also has multiple CTA bus route connections.

The Blue Line provides direct access to the Loop, O’Hare Airport and west-suburban Oak Park and Forest Park.

Avenir has quick access onto I-90/94 for north and westbound travelers, but less convenient access south and eastbound.

Milwaukee Ave, Chicago

Bike lanes along Milwaukee Ave, the “hipster highway,” provide quick access to River North, the Loop, Wicker Park and Bucktown.

Zipcar locations and ride-sharing services are readily available.
